    In response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Wednesday press conference, in which he confirmed that he could not consider criminal charges against the president as a matter of Department of Justice policy, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said that Congress will “respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump.” Nadler reiterated, in a statement, Mueller’s point that “the Constitution points to Congress to take action to hold the President accountable.” The New York Democrat added: “No one, not even the President of the United States, is above the law.” Meanwhile, New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker—who is running for president in the 2020 election—called for impeachment in a tweet. “Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately,” Booker wrote.
